Guest Bath Renovation

Hey Sweet Friends!

Well, all the dust has settled (literally!) and we finally have a completed guest bathroom. PRAISE. HANDS.

If there’s one I’ve learned from all the home renovation projects we’ve done, it’s this: It will always take longer than you think, cost more than you planned, and be a bigger headache than you anticipated. Ok that was three things. You get my drift though, right?

Home projects aren’t for the faint of heart and there were many a nights that I stood in my destroyed bathroom and thought to myself “Man, I miss the old bathroom. Even with all it’s flaws.”

In typical Laura style, I started the demolition process in this bathroom long before I had the actual blessing from Matt. Oopsies. I took down the large glass mirror, ripped up two layers of vinyl floor, patched walls, and then finally got to ripping out the tub enclosure and had to call in backup. I’m honestly surprised my sweet Dad has’t just blocked my number at this point because I rarely call with any news that doesn’t begin with “Hey, Daddy, I need your help.” It’s been that way my whole life so I guess he’s used to it by now.

In true Daddy Hero fashion, he showed up with the tools we needed and we went after it. If you’ve never torn out a thirty year old tub enclosure, you’re really missing out. It was epic. Ok, actually it was horrible but we got it done.

We finally had an open space so I went to work picking out finishes. This guest bathroom doubles as my girl’s bathroom so I wanted it to be somewhat feminine without being pink. Although I do dream of doing a pink bathroom. Any takers?

For the design in this space, I stuck with neutrals and touches of antique gold. Moms of littles, y’all know how crazy things can get in your kid’s bathroom! So I was going for all the calming vibes. I wanted to also add some fun texture so my dad installed this awesome faux shiplap wall and I decided to give a little pop of color with this amazing buffalo check (removable) wallpaper. It was SO affordable and SO easy to work with!

Another favorite feature of the bathroom is the wall faucet. Once I found the $150 console table, I immediately thought a vessel sink and wall faucet would be the dreamiest. God bless my dad for making it possible!

Without further rambling, here’s the beautiful guest bath!

Here’s the BEFORE


And the AFTER

















Thank you so much for sharing in the JOY that is my upstairs bathroom being all done. Now y’all come over any time to use it, ok?
